Indian High Commission to drop e-tokens for visa seekers

Harsh Vardhan Shringla, the neighbouring country’s resident envoy to Bangladesh, made the revelation during a programme in Madaripur.

The high commission in recent months had taken several initiatives to encourage Bangladeshi travellers and businessmen in making trips to India.

Since October, full-time college and university students of Bangladesh do not require e-tokens to apply for visa.

A month before, the high commission introduced a pilot scheme for one month to enable Bangladeshi women travelling to India to apply for visas without an e-token, only if the visa seekers can produce confirmed return air tickets.

The Madaripur programme was organised to mark the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing between the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh and the district authorities for various projects including infrastructure development of several schools and colleges.

Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan and Madaripur Additional Deputy Commissioner Babar Ali Mir were present at the programme.
